Autorentext

Green grew up in a small town where he was taught to play pool from his brother, John at an early age. The Blue Hand is Green's first work choosing to write about a new breed and culture of pool player. His characters come alive in these fictional pages. It was high school when he discovered a passion to write. The author always loved writing and at one point was editor of his college newspaper. His idols include Frank Zappa, Leonard Cohen, and Hunter S. Thompson. Skiing and golfing are seasonal events in Green's world, while playing pool and writing are eternal. He presently lives in the mountains of British Columbia with his two sons, Hunter and Graham.



Klappentext

This is not the usual pool hustler book. The Blue Hand is ground zero for a new generation of pool hero. Pool hustlers, or road players, always tell their tales of big adventure in different towns. The Blue Hand is the story of a few friends and their lives in one of those small towns. Carmichaels is the pool hall where top pool hustlers stop every year for a shot at quick money. Some of them find it, some do not. Russian and Colombian crime lords have ties to this town too. They underestimated these few locals and after a pool game ends violently, revenge soon becomes war. It is a dark story about pool playing, pot growing alcoholics. There is sex, and death, and illegal and dangerous drugs. Tommy has a desire to be the best pool player he can be, playing until his hands are stained blue with pool chalk. Frisk grew up in the fields of Colombia, has mysterious connections and he is deadly. Lenny knows where to grow fields of pot and Franco knows how. These guys play pool, grow weed, sell hash, drink constantly, and generally find new ways to just keep on going as if nothing had happened.
